Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from J.M.G. v. L.D.G., 2016 ONSC 7990 (CanLII):

Where success in a step in a case is divided, the court may exercise its discretion to apportion costs as appropriate (Rule 24(6)). The court may also in those circumstances award costs to the party who was more successful on an overall global basis. Boland v. Boland [2012] O.J. No. 1830 (OCJ).
